It's a rebadged PDP-8/L from late 1969.  The guy I got it from says it 
was used until the mid-2000s for creating paper tapes that drove CNC 
machines.  It came with an ASR-33 teletype, its only peripheral, so I 
assume the ASR was used for punching the tapes.

After a few small repairs it's running fine, I still need to get the 
ASR-33 working properly (still having trouble with the reader-run 
control, and everything needs to be cleaned.)

I have more pictures of it here:
